We are very excited today to be kicking off our fundraising campaign for Extra Life 2016! This is one of our favorite events of the entire year and we’re incredibly excited to be participating again. We’ve also once again partnered with some of the best developers in the industry to bring you some fantastic incentives for donating.
WHAT IS EXTRA LIFE?
Extra Life is a gaming marathon that takes place on November 5th and raises money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across the country. Since it began in 2008, Extra Life has raised more that $22 million dollars for CMN hospitals! This will be the 4th year that Team Mega Dads has participated and we have helped to raise over $1500 in that time. All money raised by our team goes to Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare in St.Paul, MN.
WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP THE CAUSE?
You can help out by sponsoring our team and making a donation on our team fundraising page. Donations of every amount are welcome and greatly appreciated, whether you can donate $2, $20 or $200. Donations are also tax deductible and 100% of your donation goes to help children and their families that are in need of a helping hand.
OKAY, I PLEDGED MY SUPPORT. NOW WHAT?
Now it’s our turn. On November 5th we will take part in the marathon gaming session to help raise awareness for the cause. We will be playing games all day from 8am until 8pm CST and streaming it all live on our Twitch channel. Throughout the day we will be participating in all sorts of nonsense and giving away rad prizes! We hope that you stop by the stream and chat with us (or mock us).
DID I HEAR SOMETHING ABOUT PRIZES?
Yes! In addition to the prizes we’ll be giving away on game day, we also once again have a huge list of games that we’ll be giving away to every single person who donates! You simply check out our list of available games, and when you make your donation put the game(s) that you’d like to receive in the comments section. Prizes are available on a first come basis, so donate early to try and make sure to get the one you want.
Donations of $5 – $10 = 1 FREE GAME
Donations of $11 – 20 = 2 FREE GAMES
Donations of $21 and over = 3 FREE GAMES
We hope you’re able to lend your support to the team and help us to reach our fundraising goal of $700 for this year. CMN Hospitals help countless kids and their families every year but it wouldn’t be possible without donations from amazing people like yourself. And then join us November 5th for a day of games and celebration. We’ll see you there!
